Women for the win!
As women everywhere speak out about equality in Hollywood, and there’s a woman about to win the presidency, it’s only right that women take over directing some of the biggest shows on television. First up? Netflix’s original series, Jessica Jones.
When Jessica Jones returns to Netflix for its second season, every single episode will be directed by a woman.
The show’s executive producer, Melissa Rosenberg said on Friday at the Transforming Hollywood 7: Diversifying Entertainment conference held at the University of Southern California’s Annenberg School for Communication and Journalism, “someone else involved in the production floated the idea of booking only women as directors.”
Well done, ladies.
